Bright Shiny Things

One project is never enough.
Yummy Fable
I have to wonder - do painters start planning their next work before they are halfway through a painting? Do songwriters end up humming completely new melodies as they are sorting out an arrangement?

I have worn the same pair of black leather gloves almost every non-warm day this winter and last - never change them.

But before I am even finished the first cuff on this pair of gloves, I'm already starting to debate what contrast colour would work when I knit the next pair with the green Yummy yarn that I bought at The Naked Sheep .

Pattern: Handpainted Gloves by Karendipity designs. You have to love a pattern that includes the following instructions: "At this point, put down your knitting and go into the kitchen. Eat an entire bar of chocolate"

LOL too funny, I would think at some point they would have to sing a different tune in the middle of what they are doing.... I love the look of your pattern and you must be enjoying it to be debating the contrast colours of the next already!!!! And yes, who would not love a pattern that includes instruction to go eat a bar of chocolate!!!!

I'm supposed to have a bar of chocolate in the kitchen? Drat no wonder my knitting always suffers.

Ooooh, I love them. I have like ten pairs of gloves in various weights, but I could certainly use these!

Really beautiful. Really, really beautiful.
I have much admiration for your ability to not lose your gloves. I've had a rash of glove losing lately. I may embed a homing device in the pair I'm working on.

I love these colors together! FibraNatura Yummy is one of my favorite sock weight yarns.

Honestly (and I am taking your artist question seriously), I think they must start planning the next one before the first one is done. I've been like that with almost every craft I have picked up.

Ha ha! Thank goodness it's not a sweater pattern right? By the time you'd finish you'd have knit a size too small if you followed all the chocolate instructions!

And here I had hoped to get through life without knitting a pair of gloves. But then I thought that about socks, too, back in the day. Lovely yarns, lovelier WIP, and onto the queue at Ravelry it goes! [Thank you, I think?]

Wait, not everybody loses one pair or more a season? So far, I have lost 4 pairs of black cashmere gloves, one pair of leopard spot gloves, and another pair I can't remember. Maybe knitting them yourself makes them stick. Hmmm...
